"Take a deep breath, put your reasonableness trousers on and work this out", Nathan said.
As part of the settlement, Musk begrudgingly agreed to seek consent before he tweets.
Musk had until Monday to explain why he shouldn't be held him in contempt of court over a tweet on February 19, published outside trading hours, which the SEC said violated a September settlement agreement with the unpredictable CEO.
It is unclear if Musk plans to attend the hearing loss. Musk said pre-approval wasn't needed by his tweet since it was information that could be meaningful to investors. "He explained Musk does what he's told and can be" somebody trying his best to comply".
Buffett, 88, said Musk has "room for improvement" in behaving like a CEO, though he added that the Tesla chief "would say the same thing".
The issue within Musk's tweets stems from a settlement reached following Musk tweeted he had secured the funds to take Tesla personal at $420 an share - a premium over the price at the time - when he didn't. Last August, that conversation, delivered the stock of the company on a wild ride. The SEC says investors who bought Tesla stock are hurt by it but before they had information that is precise.
Attorney John Hueston said the SEC's very first step after the tweet about production should have been to approach Tesla in good faith, and Nathan agreed.
Authorities concluded he hadn't lined up the sum to pull the deal off, although musk backed the notion of taking the business private.
"Hueston said further restricting Musk's capacity to communicate about his company and imposing penalties would" freeze his capability" to function as a successful entrepreneur.
The legal tussle for Musk, 47, served as a distraction amid a record decline in deliveries for Tesla during the first quarter.
The SEC sought to oust Musk out of his role as CEO and chairman within his August tweet. That tweet sent the business's inventory.
As of Wednesday's close, Tesla shares were down 12.3% up to now this season. Instead, Musk and Tesla agreed to pay $40 million and made other concessions to settle the case.
Musk's unpredictable behaviour has led some to wonder whether he ought to stay CEO of Tesla, but others say he's precious and the visionary behind the company to lose. This past calendar year, when he called a diver who assisted rescue 12 boys on a Thai football group from a flooded cave, Musk berated stock exchange analysts to asking questions regarding the financing of Tesla and motivated a defamation litigation a pedophile.
